A method of classifying cells based upon their morphology includes a method of classifying objects in a cytological specimen, including the steps of obtaining a first image of at least part of a cytological specimen, classifying objects in the first image on the basis of a predetermined criteria, obtaining a second image of at least one of the objects most likely to have a predetermined criteria, and displaying at least part of the second image to produce a visual display of at least one of the objects most likely to have a predetermined criteria. The method of classifying objects in a specimen includes the steps of obtaining a first digital representation of at least part of the cytological specimen, storing the first digital representation, performing a first filtering operation to filter out images in the first representation that are the approximate size of a malignant or premalignant cell or smaller to produce a second digital representation, removing the images in the second representation from the images in the first representation to produce a third representation, performing a second filtering operation to filter out images in the first representation that are the approximate size of premalignant or malignant cell or larger than the approximate size of a premalignant or malignant cell to produce a fourth representation, and eliminating the images in the fourth representation from the images in the third representation to produce a representation having substantially only images the approximate size of a premalignant or malignant cell.
